Clutch "Clutch 4 Charity" is pleased to partner with Kids In Need Foundation.
The Kids In Need Foundation’s mission is to ensure that every child is prepared to learn and succeed in the classroom by providing free school supplies nationally to students most in need.
For the 16 million kids who come from families struggling with extreme poverty, getting school supplies can make all the difference in the world to their future success. How can a kid be expected to succeed in the classroom without the basic tools to learn?

- Grades, classroom behavior, and engagement improve
- Self-esteem increases
- Attitudes toward school and learning strengthen
Last year, the Kids In Need Foundation helped 200,000 teachers and 6 million students in some of the most challenged communities across the country. In their 22 years, they have distributed over $1 Billion in supplies to kids who would otherwise go without them. Kids In Need Foundation knows school supplies change lives.
